  1. 2013-Infotainment and odometer screen came on?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I went to a dealership last night that had a 2013 Volt Premium for around $14,000. It only has 35,000 miles on it. As I was looking around the car I noticed that that infotainment screen and where the odometer should be, were lit up. Is this typical? I'm not a car girl by any means I just...
  2. beige leather, black steering wheel?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Has anyone every seen this color combo in a volt? (6th photo down in this article) It's beige leather but the rest of the interior is black. I'd LOVE to find that combo, but I've only seen interiors that are ALL beige, or ALL black...
  3. Tan leather?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    First time poster. MAN the registration process for this site is a pain. And the password requirements are just silly. It's just a car, not nuclear launch codes. But I digress. I was hoping to get a Tesla Model 3, but my mom is going through some financial hardship so I'll need to help her...
  4. Center Console and Steering Wheel Accents Color Change?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have a 2013 Base model Volt with ceramic white center console cover and steering wheel accents with jet black cloth seats. Is it possible to change to a more subdued look by replacing both with the dark accent pieces used with jet black leather seats that year? If it is possible, any idea...
  5. Eco-conscious cars should allow upgrades without insisting we buy leather

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I am very excited to buy the 2016 Volt just as soon as I possibly can. I already have the electrician putting in the new charger! BUT... It looks like I'm going to have to buy leather in order to upgrade to the safety/tech packages. This seems to miss the point of why people might be buying...
  6. Found cause of one interior rattle

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Our new 2013 Volt has developed TWO distinct interior rattles/noises. So I removed everything from the car to help eliminate possible causes and as I was emptying the rear storage area (EVSE and tire pump) I found this rattling around After looking at our 2012 I discovered it is supposed to...
  7. Likely new Volt owner but need a little help to pick colors

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    So, after looking into EV possibilities I think I'm going to go with the Volt. I've considered all the upgrades possible and I'm pretty sure I've nailed that down. Practically the only thing stopping me, and it's a big one, is picking exterior/interior colors. For the exterior I have...
  8. NVH - noisy doors especially when cold

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi All, I have noises coming from around both the front doors. The noise gets worse when cold. It's a bit hard to describe a sound but I'll try. It's a muted rattle type sound, like two things rubbing together. But it's not "sharp" like two hard things. Maybe instead like the inner door...
  9. Ditch Those Incandescent Interior Bulbs!

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Hey All, I bought my 2013 white diamond tricoat Volt about three weeks ago, and I love, love, love it! :) I imagine many of you are like me, and couldn't believe Chevy used boring old incandescent bulbs for the interior lamps in such an otherwise technically sophisticated automobile. I found...
  10. Two good friends now getting Volts! Another wants to sell his Audi A5 for one!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Two of my good friends are getting or now have Volts! One already got his (black on black) last weekend, loaded. He traded in a 2008 Toyota SUV (owned). The other is going this weekend to trade in his 2010 Prius (leased). The third is seriously considering selling his Audi A5 and getting one...
  11. help understanding order-

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Hi All. Newbie here. I have a MY'12 ordered, no dealer allocation yet. Here's my question. I ordered (at least, as far as I know) "light neutral seats with dark accents" - essentially, the tan leather interior. On a copy of the order that i received from the dealer, that's listed under trim...
  12. Filling the rear gap

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Hi, Reading this article, I was wondering. Did you fill the gap between the rear seats? How did you do? If you've not done, doesn't it disturbs you? Because the boot content may be transferred to seating space during a strong braking.
  13. Production Volt Interior Further Refined: Center LCD Screen, Center Stack Buttons, and Vents

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I had some further discussions about the Chevy Volt's interior with chief designer Bob Boniface.  He advised me that the production interior design has undergone some further refinements. This images above reveal those. The older design is at the post bottom.  You can download the high-res image...
